Last night I was on the couch getting caught up on the lecture material for a new professional certificate program that I am in. It’s a cert for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) which I am very interested in. It’s awesome to check out if you are interested and free! #USF #USFMuma. Anyway this week’sContinue reading “It Starts with Love”
Rise and Grind could cause us to prioritize our to-dos and accomplishments over connecting and remaining connected to our relationships. Rise and Shine keeps the focus on relationships, opportunities to share with others and generally speaking letting our little light shine.
Being good and doing good to others, sharing God’s message with others, and knowing that you are being a help, blessing and encouragement to someone, is good natural medicine. It is a natural mood lifter. No side effects just life affecting for both you and the recipients.
When we get up and get dressed, we tend to dress for the day — the weather and the activities, yet when we “put on the whole armor of God,” perhaps we are putting on our generic Godly armor. Reading a devotional or a planned reading is a great place to start but in the spirit of personal / spiritual refinement, perhaps a step further would be to look at what is on our plate for the day (assess the weather) and align our Bible reading and our prayers to cover us, protect us and build us up from the elements that we know are sure to hit.

Two weeks ago I admitted the areas where I was not really on track with in terms of my goals. I felt a bit weird sharing that my couple prayer time was not on track with my goals nor my 1 on 1 dates with each kid. I overthought about sharing that. What will theyContinue reading “Who Are We Beholden To?”
There are a lot of things in life that we hold onto on the hope that maybe it will add something positive. It could be a relationship, a job, to-dos that you really don’t need to do, activities, and even social media pages and groups. The things that are negative, fussy, and angry that don’tContinue reading “Declutter”
I can’t believe we just wrapped up the second month of the year. We all started with goals in terms of our outcomes and hopefully our habits. This weekend, I thought about some of the positive strides that I made toward my goals. Yes, I have a long way to go to get where IContinue reading “Celebrate the Wins”
I think I have mentioned in the past that some people actually don’t like the woman in Prov. 31. True – I have heard it with my own ears. I think some find her to be hard to live up to. I mean she does so much and seems so selfless. As I read ofContinue reading “Self-Care Not Optional”
